Old Yucca flowering at Monserrate

First flowers I have ever seen from this 6m tall plant. Has never flowered in last 20 odd years - suggests it might be a hybrid. Any ID?

I'm reliably informed that "according to literature only Yucca filifera and Yucca potosina have pendulous inflorescences". So any ideas?
Here is a link to a photo of Y. filifera

Dado o sítio onde está, não será possível que só agora tenha florido porque, em 20 anos, só agora é que teve condições para isso? Just a thought...
